Growth Hacker

0 people like this description

The Texas Tribune, a nonprofit, nonpartisan digital media organization, is looking for a consultant to serve as its first "growth hacker." This is a three-month contractor position.

A front-end coder with marketing sensibility, this person will focus on low-cost, innovative approaches to driving digital audience growth during this three-month engagement. The ideal candidate will have solid HTML, CSS and JavaScript skills and digital marketing acumen.

Working with our various content feeds – including RSS, APIs, social channels and site scraping – the developer will create digital products that expand our content distribution and help third party sites, large and small, adopt and share our content.

He or she will lead – from idea to execution – tests to spur new users and/or deepen engagement with existing users. Our growth hacker could, for example, build a branded RSS widget to be displayed on news sites (TV, radio and print partners) and topic-based sites (state agencies, trade groups, grassroots organizations) as a way to drive traffic.

This is part of a fellowship program with the Reynolds Journalism Institute, designed to test the concept of growth hacking at a digital news organization and share lessons and best practices with the rest of the industry.

You will:

Work in a sandbox with considerable freedom to test new ideas
Be responsible for rapid deployment of multiple tests
Ensure proper measurement of each test
Participate in weekly status updates, particularly with marketing and technology
